Council OKs tax break for Children’s By JENNIFER NESBITT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Nationwide Children’s Hospital will receive a 20-percent tax abatement for new employees at its soon-to-be-expanded campus. Westerville City Council approved the seven-year income tax offset Jan. 18 for an ambulatory surgery center that was approved by the Westerville Planning Commission last month. The building will be the third at what is now being called a campus for Nationwide Chil-

dren’s Hospital at the corner of Cleveland Avenue and County Line Road. Nationwide Children’s plans a fourth building on the site but has not yet presented plans to the city for that building. If the hospital breaks ground on a fourth building before Dec. 31, 2016, the tax incentive agreement would be extended by another five years. The ambulatory surgery center will create 80 new jobs in Westerville with payroll of $6-million, Westerville economic development administrator Jason

Bechtold said. With a fourth building on the site, that would increase the number of jobs to 140 with a $14 -million payroll, Bechtold said. The full expansion would bring $1.95million in additional tax revenue to the city over the 12-year period, he said, with the annual incentive to the company ranging between $5,000 and $40,000. Bechtold said the city has been working with Nationwide Children’s since last fall to help the hospital system ex-

pand its services in Westerville. The ambulatory surgery center will offer new medical services to residents, with Nationwide Children’s investment also helping to bolster the city’s economy and tax base, Bechtold said. “It was clearly evident that this service would be an attraction to any community,” he said. “We’re definitely excited with the proposal that we had and their commitment that they are moving forward with their over $20-million investment with this service.” The tax incentive agreement was ap-

proved by a 5-1 vote, with Councilman Craig Treneff casting the only no vote. Treneff said while he supports tax incentive agreements in general, it did not make sense to approve an incentive agreement when Nationwide Children’s already had firm plans to expand within the city. Council chairman Mike Heyeck said the hospital’s campus is an asset to Westerville. “Nationwide Children’s is another See CHILDREN’S, page A2

Board OKs contract with bus drivers, mechanics

Council considers $10.43M in bonds



ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Westerville City School District now has current contracts with all four of its bargaining units. The board of education approved an agreement with OAPSE Local 719 on Monday, Jan. 24. Local 719 was the last of the four unions to approve a contract with the district. The union’s contract had expired June 30, though employees continued to work under the conditions of the expired contract during negotiations. Members of the union, which include 107 bus drivers and seven mechanics, will receive a 2.5-percent increase in their base pay for the current school year and a 1.75percent increase for the next school year. Those raises are in line with what was awarded to the district’s other three unions. The new two-year contract also includes some changes dealing with disciplinary procedures, union president Dale Grossman said previously. The district began negotiations with the union last spring. A contract was put before union members in November but was voted down. At that time, Local 719 was asking for a $100 tool allowance for each of its seven mechanics, who use their own tools to do their work, Grossman said. Though that was a serious sticking point for negotiations, the tool allowance ultimately was left out of the final contract. “This may be the longest negotiations time period,” school

Westerville City Council could vote to issue more than $10-million in bonds this year. Council heard the first reading of four pieces of legislation at its Jan. 18 meeting that, if approved, would allow the city to issue a total of $10.43-million in bonds for various city projects. The largest portion of that amount would be $5.8million in bonds to fund upgrades to Westerville’s electrical systems, which would include the rollout of advanced metering infrastructure for the city. In September, council decided against seeking an overhaul of the electrical system that included replacing existing electrical meters throughout the city with digital “smart meters.” The city had received a $4.3-million federal grant to help with the $10.7million cost of that overhaul. At that time, city council asked the staff to look at a gradual rollout of an advanced metering system, beginning by offering the technology to local businesses on a volunteer basis. The $5.8-million in bonds would cover the cost of installing the first phase of the advanced metering infrastructure, new streetlights, conduit and manholes. See $10.43M IN BONDS, page A2

French to finish Gonzales’ term on city council By JENNIFER NESBITT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Westerville attorney Jenifer French will be sworn in as the newest member of Westerville City Council on Feb. 1. French was selected unanimously by council’s remaining six members Jan. 18 to fill the unexpired term of Anne Gonzales, who resigned Dec. 31 after nine years on council to be sworn in as representative for Ohio’s 19th House District. French was one of 13 residents to apply and be interviewed to fill Gonzales’ term, which ends Nov. 30, 2013. In her application for the seat, French said the city must focus on attracting and retaining busi-

nesses, as well as on retaining residents by marketing Westerville’s services and amenities. French has lived in Westerville for four years. She previously served as a member of the city’s Recreation Advisory Board. She has been active in community events and with Westerville City Schools. French is married and has two children. Also at the Jan. 18 meeting, council approved a resolution recognizing Gonzales for her nine years of service. After unanimously approving the resolution, members of council presented Gonzales with a pen holder and a Westerville flag, which she said she will hang in her new office at the Ohio Statehouse. Council chairman Mike Heyeck praised Gonzales for her work on council.

“If we could find someone as good as you, that would be a success story,” he said. Gonzales thanked the other members of council and the city staff for helping her do her job well in Westerville. “Message to residents: This group here (council) is absolutely amazing,” she said. Gonzales said council is responsible for making tough decisions, but ultimately, members try to make the best decisions for residents. She said she is thankful for the nine years she was able to serve on council. “It’s just a feel-good process to help people out,” she said.

The Westerville school district may ask to delay the implementation of all-day, every-day kindergarten for an additional two years. Under former Gov. Ted Strickland’s last budget bill, House Bill 1, schools were required to implement allday, every-day kindergarten by this school year or apply for a one-year waiver and implement the program in the 2011-2012 school year. Last year, Westerville schools chose to apply for the waiver for this school year and look toward implementation for the next school year. Last month, the state announced that schools would once again be allowed to ask for waivers, this time for two years. The Westerville Board of Education heard the first reading of a resolution Jan. 24 that would ask the state for a waiver. To be eligible for a waiver, the board must pass the resolution, the district’s superintendent must complete and sign a waiver form and the district must present an implementation plan for the 2013-2014 school year. Space and cost restraints are key factors in leading the district to apply for a waiver, said Karen McClel-

WAIVER $10.43M IN BONDS CHILDREN’S Continued from page A1 lan, the district’s deputy chief academic officer. According to a survey of parents conducted by the district, 80 percent of eligible families would opt to place their children in an all-day, everyday kindergarten program, and some parents who currently would choose to send their children to private all-day, every-day kindergarten programs would choose to instead enroll their children in Westerville schools. To accommodate that number of students in an all-day kindergarten program, the district would have to hire an additional 21 teachers and establish another 18 classrooms, McClellan said. The program would cost an estimated $1.98-million to implement, and most of that cost would be recurring annual costs, she said. By applying for the waiver, the space issue would at least be solved because by the time the district would have to provide all-day, every-day kindergarten, the preschool program will be consolidated at the district’s Eastwind facility, opening up space at elementary schools, McClellan said. Another reason to seek the waiver is that a bill recently introduced into the Ohio House, House Bill 30, would eliminate the requirement in anticipation of expected state funding cuts, she said.

Continued from page A1 If approved, another $1.1-million in bonds would help to pay for a rollout of advanced metering infrastructure for the Division of Water. Council chairman Mike Heyeck said the city staff will give a presentation on the rollout of advanced metering infrastructure when council hears the second reading of the legislation at its Feb. 1 meeting. An additional $2.25-million in bonds would go toward capital improvement projects, including street resurfacing, repairs and reconstruction and related improvements, such as curb, sidewalk, landscaping, drainage and utility improvements. The remaining $1.28-million in bonds would be used for the acquisition and improvement of property by the city. All of the improvements being

paid for with those bonds are projects listed in the city’s 2011-2015 capital improvement budget, said Gina Love, Westerville’s interim finance director. Love said she would like to see a vote on the bonds at council’s Feb. 15 meeting, which would allow the finance department to go to market with the bond package in March. Though the bonds have been broken into four pieces of legislation, Love said, if approved, they will be combined when taken to market. Love said the $10.43-million is the maximum in bonds to be sought for the group of legislation and, if possible, she said the city will seek a lesser amount if the decision is made to eliminate projects or reduce the scope of projects. “We will make sure that no more debt than needed is issued for the projects,” she said.

CONTRACT Continued from page A1 board member Kevin Hoffman said before the contract was unanimously approved by the board.

School board eliminates sibling preference for magnet schools By JENNIFER NESBITT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Younger siblings of magnet school students will no longer receive first dibs at open first-grade slots in the magnet program. The Westerville Board of Education voted Jan. 24 to undo the sibling-preference policy they created at the recommendation of the administration last year. The sibling-preference policy allowed firstgraders to enroll in the same magnet school their older siblings already attended without going through the traditional lottery system. It was in place for this school year only. The board chose not to include a “grandfather” clause in the changed policy that would have allowed families who entered the magnet school program this year to reap the benefits of the sibling-preference policy. Proponents of the policy had asked the school board to consider a grandfather clause. The recommendation to return to a traditional lottery came from a “magnet school collaborative” put in place by the district’s administration last fall to discuss the issue. The sibling-preference policy garnered a fair amount of attention from families in the magnet program and families hoping to enter

the program. Before the board vote on Monday, members of the public asked the board to consider upholding the sibling-preference policy. Those in favor of sibling preference argued that families benefit when both children are at the same school because it makes it easier to pick up and drop children off at school, get to know other families and keep track of school events. They said the schools also benefit because families are fully invested in the school all of their children attend. “Sibling priority was done right. It wasn’t some back-door deal. It was well reasoned out. There were facts behind it,” parent Luke Davis said. “We’ve had one year. We don’t even know with past data, how many seats went to students with the lottery.” Parents of magnet school students also said reversing the sibling-preference policy equated to the district breaking a promise to parents of magnet school students. “I feel we were sort of given a gift as a magnet parent, and then it was taken away immediately before giving it a chance to see if it would work,” Becky Chaney said. Opponents of sibling preference have said &

at previous board meetings that the policy gives an unfair advantage to families who are initially lucky in the lottery system. They said an open lottery is the best way to allow equal access to the magnet programs. The school board ultimately agreed with the sibling-preference opponents, with members commenting that the lottery was the best way to provide equal opportunity to students. “To me, it is about equality and making sure there is an opportunity for everyone in the district, not just a specialized group,” board president Kristi Robbins said. Board members said there is a perception that magnet schools are superior to the district’s traditional elementary schools, but that is not the case. All schools are held to the same standards, they said, and the magnet schools are meant to provide families with educational choices. “We’re providing our families with choices and what they want to do with their family, and also providing an equal opportunity for all of our family,” board member Denise Pope said. “Everyone’s family is different. It’s about options.”

The American Cancer Society kicked off its 2011 Westerville Relay For Life event Jan. 24 at Westerville Central High School. During the kickoff, the American Cancer Society announced that the community-selected theme for the event, which will be June 24 at Westerville Central, will be a birthday party. “As the American Cancer Society, we are the official sponsor of birthdays, so this kind of goes with that,” said Amanda Fannin, cancer society income development coordinator. Leading up to June 24, Fannin said, volunteers will plan for how the birthday theme should

take shape. The cancer society is looking for volunteers for this year’s relay to help plan and carryout things like fundraising, team recruitment, sponsorships, silent auctions, thank-yous and awards, Fannin said. The society also is looking for people to sit on the event’s planning committee. Volunteer commitments range from chairing committees to just serving as a general volunteer, Fannin said, giving people the opportunity to give whatever amount of time they have to the event. “There’s lot of different things that people can get involved in. …They’re welcome to come and help out with anything,” Fannin said. “It’s just a group of individuals who want to volunteer

As it were

Growing community finds all levels of entertainment There are many ways to learn about a place and its past. I have always had the strong suspicion that how people entertain themselves can tell us a lot about who they were and what was important to them. With that as both an explainer and probably a bit of a warning, let’s take a look at how Columbus amused itself in its first few decades. The small frontier community pretty much entertained itself in the first few years after it was ED founded in LENTZ 1812. Carving a village out of a forest was not all that easy and the War of 1812 meant that most people did not have leisure time. The time they did have was often occupied with family and visits to close friends nearby. After the Ohio General Assembly began to meet in Columbus in 1816, there was a decided increase in the number of taverns in town and in the number of people frequenting them — much to the chagrin of local ministers and the temperance advocates in their congregations. To understand early public entertainment in Columbus, it is important to remember that, then as now, there were several different “arts communities” in the capital city. Some of the early residents were quite well-educated and sorely missed the music, drama and literary world they had left behind. Several of these people formed what came to be called “the first musical organization in Columbus.” The Handel Society apparently performed for the assembled multitude on the occasion of Independence Day in 1821 and 1822, and according to an account from that time, performed with “a superior degree of elegance.” How the singing of Handel’s work went over with the frontier folk who had never heard of him or his music was probably summed up with, “Handel was handled quite well” or something similar. For the rest of Columbus, there were military organizations with their fifes and drums and the occasional entertainment of an itinerant musician. But there was not much else — until 1827. On April 21, 1827, Tippo Sultan, the Great Hunting Elephant,

came to town. Tippo was accompanied, according to a local poster, by “The Mammoth Lion, Tiger, Cat, Lynx, Shetland Pony, Dandy Jack, etc. etc. The above named animals will be seen at Mr. Russell’s tavern, on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, the 27th, 28th and 29th inst. The exhibition will be accompanied by good music. Admittance 25 cents — children under 12 years of age half price.” Presumably, Mr. Russell felt his tavern would benefit from Tippo and his friends. It did not work out that way, as a local history recalls: “At night, the ‘hunting elephant’ was locked up in the tavern backyard where, during one of the nights of his sojourn, he broke loose, and for a time amused himself by pumping water at the well. Finally he broke the pump handle and looking around for some new pastime, spied two barrels of flour standing on the back porch. Breaking into these, he, for a while, ate flour and drank water alternately until he converted the residue of the flour into paste. “Awakened by the noise, Mr. Russell descended and was received by the elephant with a fusillade of dough. Beating a retreat, the discomfited host aroused the keeper of the frolicsome beast, who, after some effort, succeeded in getting him tied again.” As a counterpoint of Tippo Sultan and his friends, the more elevated culture group in town welcomed a “Mr. and Mrs. Harper” who, with a few friends and associates , were happy to perform Oliver Goldsmith’s classic play, “She Stoops to Conquer” for any who cared to come and pay to see it. Apparently, a number of people did, since the play was performed in the only place big enough to hold them — the pub-

lic market building at State and High streets. Presumably, the live chickens, pigs and cows who occupied various stalls in the market were removed for the evening. The clash between “high culture” and, shall we say, “not-sohigh culture” continued apace. In 1833, one Rufus Beach organized the Franklin Harmonic Society, looking to improve “the vocal and instrumental music” of the city. Soon, S. Butler and Company came to Columbus with a menagerie that included “the great hunting or war elephant, Hannibal.” Apparently Columbus really liked elephants in those days. By 1835, Columbus had become a city of more than 5,000 people. The rapid growth in size and influence of Columbus evidently convinced enough investors to permit the construction of the first real theatre in the city. Built of wood, the Columbus Theatre stood on the west side of High Street just a few hundred feet north of Long Street, where the Brunson Building is today. Over the next several years, the theatre saw performances of classic plays, including Shakespeare and such titles as “St. George and the Dragon,” “Mazeppa” and “The Cataract of the Ganges.” For the less refined, the Columbus Theatre was also the home of Miss Honey, a “danseuse.” Of Miss Honey, a local paper reported, “Her most piquant dances were frequently followed by a shower of silver quarters.” It was also reported that “Miss Honey had considerable talent as an actress, and in whatever part she took evoked applause.” In later years, it was noted that “towards the end of 1841, the Columbus Theatre seems to have degenerated both financially and morally, and its evil influence upon the young people of the city, resulting particularly from its ‘bar’ for the sale of intoxicants, was loudly complained of.” The clash of culture between “legitimate” and not-so-legitimate entertainment would continue for much of the rest of the history of the city — and for that matter, down to our own time as well.

Genoa to seek park grant By BONNIE BUTCHER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Genoa Township trustees on Jan. 20 agreed to seek a Ohio Department of Natural Resources grant to add features at Center Green Park, 7846 Center Green Drive. The township is surveying residents on their use of Center Green Park, to obtain information that will be used in the grant application. If approved, the grant would be used to install basketball courts and a pier for fishing, said township administrator Paul Wise. Trustees also: • Discussed the planned pur-

chase of three police cruisers. The trustees earlier agreed to buy the cars for $64,701, from which $7,000 would be deducted by trading in three old cruisers. Trustees learned the auto dealership now wants to pay only $6,800 on the trade-in. Trustee Karl Gebhardt said trustees needed more information because the lower trade-in alters the deal. • Agreed to pay Downes Fishel Hass Kim LLP $5,192 for union contract negotiations with the police and fire unions. Trustees are expected to vote on the contracts at a special meeting 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 26. The negotiations began last year in late sum-

mer. • Approved a $2,831 invoice to Verizon Wireless for the monthly use of all township cell phones. • Agreed to pay $4,446 in property taxes on recently acquired township properties that are going through the exemption process. Fiscal officer Patrick Myers said the township will be reimbursed the funds. • Said the Delaware County auditor has certified the township’s three-year, 0.7-mill road levy that will be be on the May 3 ballot. The levy is a renewal and won’t increase taxes to residents, trustee Karl Gebhardt said. The issue would raise about $663,442 a year.

Have You Heard? by Greg VanHorssen EARS AND HEART SHARE MORE THAN 3 LETTERS According to a recent Canadian study, prolonged exposure to loud noise may be as bad for the heart as it is for the ears. Researchers have found that people who have worked in noisy workplaces for at least one-and-a-half years may have triple the risk of developing serious heart problems compared with workers in quieter environments. Workers in noisy environments tended to be overweight and to smoke, which are also risk factors for heart disease. The noise-induced heart disease link seemed to be strongest in men under age 50. It is thought that the stress caused by loud noise could lead to constricted blood flow through the coronary arteries. Whatever the mechanism, workers in loud environments should protect their ears. Pilots, construction workers, rock musicians, even landscape artists wear ear protection while working. The noise levels in many instances in our lives is enough to cause hearing to deteriorate, often without our being aware of happening. Do you spend lots of time in a noisy environment? Have you been experiencing hearing difficulties? There really isn’t any reason to wait any longer hoping the problem will go away, because it won’t Take charge of your hearing - call ABSOLUTE HEARING SOLUTIONS, 614-654-4309 to arrange a hearing test at 1000 Morrison Road, Suite H, Gahanna.

Jackson’s defense propels ’Cats boys By JEREMY STEWART ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Westerville South High School boys basketball team played in a crowded arena at Capital University for its Jan. 22 game against Burlington (N.J.) Life Center Academy in the Play-ByPlay Classic. The game meant little in terms of postseason seeding in the Central District, and it didn’t have any bearing on the OCC-Cardinal Division standings. But there still was a buzz, as a high-

ly touted team from the East Coast came to the Midwest to play one of the best that central Ohio has to offer. “You want to test yourself against great teams,” South coach Ed Calo said. “You want to find out what you need to work on. I think we found out a lot about what we need to work on.” South won 60-55 for its 39th consecutive regular-season victory. All eyes were on the matchup between Ohio State recruit LaQuinton Ross, a 6-foot-8 forward, and South’s Traevon Jackson, a 6-3 guard who’s

going to Wisconsin. The two guarded each other throughout the game. Jackson was the catalyst for a South defense that held Life Center Academy to 19 points in the first half. South rendered Ross and Life Center Academy guard John Johnson, a Pittsburgh recruit, ineffective. Ross finished with 16 points and Johnson had 17, but most of those came as Life Center Academy tried to rally from a fivepoint second quarter. Jackson scored 10 points in what was a balanced offensive effort for the

Wildcats, but his value was on the defensive end. “It wasn’t his offense that made him special, it was his defense,” Calo said after the game. “I don’t even know how much Ross had. That offense goes through him every play. Traevon did a good job because the pressure was always on him to execute defensively. I don’t know how much it took out of him on the offensive end, but I really didn’t care. We needed him on defense.” Four players scored in double figures for South led by guards Ben Jones,

who had 12 points, and Isaiah Rogers, who had 11. Guard Demarkeo Lyshe also had 10 points. Rogers set the tone in the second quarter with back-to-back 3-pointers from well behind the line. The second one gave South a 29-19 lead with 2 minutes, 8 seconds left before halftime. For a team whose offense is predicated on up-tempo play and 3-point shooting, Rogers’ shot not only gave South a 10-point lead, but proved its See SOUTH, page B2


OHSAA division changes not fair It’s not hard to imagine the confrontational feelings that were created when the OHSAA released a statement Jan. 13 announcing that it was tackling the seemingly age-old debate regarding competitive balance among the state’s public and private schools. The proposed referJARROD endum, to be ULREY voted on by O H S A A member schools in May, initially would reset divisional alignments in football, baseball, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, girls volleyball and softball based on a school’s sport-by-sport “athletic count.” That figure would be calculated using mathematical factors that take into account economics, school enrollment policies and tradition. On one side of the debate are public schools that won only eight of the 27 state team titles — one of six in football — that the OHSAA awarded during the 2010 fall season. Many in the private-school camp, meanwhile, are left to wonder whether rules changes, which seemingly would bump them into larger divisions, are fair. There are many reasons for the disproportionate number of titles won by private schools, but the primary one is that some of those schools can assemble virtual all-star teams from fiveand six-county areas. With that in mind, it does seem reasonable for the OHSAA to visit the issue of boundaries when determining the divisions for private schools, and some large public schools. The biggest problem I have is with the “tradition factor” that would increase a school’s “athletic count.” The OHSAA says this aspect would be determined by “state championship game appearances, state tournament appearances and regional finals appearances.” The implication of this sounds more like a step toward eventually giving participation medals to everyone as opposed to rewarding the best of the best. Few people want to see Delphos St. John’s beat Shadyside 77-6 for the Division VI state football title, and having Youngstown Ursuline win three consecutive Division V state championships is less than ideal when talking about keeping the field balanced. The problem is that if the OHSAA moves St. John’s up to Division V and Ursuline to Division IV, the same problems will persist, but with different teams. If Hartley would have been in Division III instead of Division IV last fall, it would have

Tabbytha Walker of Central tries to block the shot of South’s Erica Aiello during the visiting Warhawks’ 46-40 victory Jan. 22. The Warhawks were 6-8 overall and 4-5 in the OCC-Cardinal Division before playing Westerville North on Jan. 26.


Central girls get confidence boost By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Although his team’s offense has been inconsistent this season, Westerville Central High School girls basketball coach Doug Etgen has never lost confidence in his defense. The Warhawks used that defensive intensity to win three of their last four games heading into an OCC-Cardinal Division contest against Westerville North on Jan. 26. The recent success included a 46-40 win at Westerville South on Jan. 22, avenging a 41-37 home loss to the Wildcats on Dec. 8. In the rematch, South led 19-7 but the Warhawks rallied to take a 27-26

lead on Abby King’s 15-foot jumper with 3 minutes, 30 seconds remaining in the third. Senior Rachel Dolby came off the bench to help push the lead to 39-32 midway through the fourth by making a short jumper and three free throws, and Central sealed the win at the freethrow line. The Warhawks were 12-for19 from the line in the game, but 7-for9 in the final two minutes. Senior Aly Jurcenko led Central with 18 points. Megan Mills had 13 and went 7-for-9 at the line. “It was important for our seniors to get the win since it’s their last time playing South (during the regular season),” Mills said. “It’s a confidence boost for us.” After allowing 14 points in the first

quarter, Central gave up just 26 over the final three. “It came down to us defensively and our rotations,” Etgen said. “South is a really good ball-screen team and we didn’t get through them all the time, but for the most part we contested their shots. That was a big part of the game.” Etgen said his team will need similar defensive efforts in the final games of the regular season and in the postseason. Central has allowed an average of 41.3 points through 14 games, and it beat that mark in recent wins over Olentangy Liberty (41-36 on Jan. 7), Centennial (46-30 on Jan. 15) and South. “We work pretty hard,” Etgen said. “The coaches do and the girls do. I compare this time of the year to the dog

days in baseball in August. We’re in late January, we’ve been practicing three months (and) the girls are sick of hearing my voice. We put a lot of time and effort into it. Wins are hard to come by. I am very happy for our girls.” The Warhawks will try for a regularseason sweep of Marysville on Friday, Jan. 28, on the road. Central defeated the Monarchs 48-34 on Dec. 17. •After a 73-53 loss to South on Jan. 21, Central boys coach Todd Minney opted to give his players the day off Jan. 22 so they could reflect on the setback and refocus for the final seven games of the regular season. “We’ve been pushing defense and reSee CENTRAL, page B2


Lieb starting to step up for Warriors boys team By SCOTT HENNEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By Tim Norman/ThisWeek

North’s Garrett Lieb goes after the ball with Travis Yates of Dublin Scioto earlier this season. Lieb has been giving the See ULREY, page B2 Warriors a recent boost on the offensive end.

Garrett Lieb took a pass at the top of the key for the Westerville North High School boys basketball team and sent the ball in flight. The third-quarter shot swished through the net as part of Lieb’s season-high 14 points during a 62-57 non-league victory over Heath on Jan. 22. The output didn’t surprise coach Kevin Thuman, who knew Lieb could step forward in several ways for the Warriors. “Garrett doesn’t shoot a lot, but when he does he takes good shots. We have the confidence that he can step up and make the shots when he takes them,” Thuman said. “We have two or three guys who do most of our scoring, but he can step up when we need him.” The 6-foot-3 senior forward averaged only 3.7 points in his first 12 games, but he has scored

a combined 28 points in his last three. “Whenever they give me a task, I try to put my mind to it and do what they want me to do,” Lieb said. “You just have to keep going and take things one day at a time and not look past anyone.” Lieb is a member of a small senior class that also includes 6-2 forward Tucker Arthurs and

We don’t go in there thinking that we’re trying to stay close or just go out there to compete. We’re trying to win.

been a strong candidate to win that title instead because Watterson, according to the proposed plan, likely would have been in Division II instead of Division III. Schools that could end up getting hurt unintentionally by a change are the Division I public schools. A perennial central Ohio football power such as Hilliard Davidson not only has to overcome fellow area public-school powers such as Pickerington Central and Dublin Coffman, but a team such as Cincinnati St. Xavier, which has 1,171 boys, could be looming later in the playoffs. The new formula potentially also would move state powers such as Mentor Lake Catholic and Toledo Central Catholic into Division I, making a tough field even tougher.

school and public-school tournaments, but that only would hurt the spirit of competition that should exist when determining the state’s best. Is there an obvious solution to the issue? Not exactly, but it doesn’t seem like radical change is necessary. Tradition should be kept out of the equation. Teams like DeSales and Watterson have earned their success by creating programs that teach winning football. This shouldn’t be penalized, but emulated by other programs. Keeping in mind the boundary issues, the OHSAA should choose to tweak, rather than revamp, the way it determines its tournament divisions. Let the rest of the arguments be settled on the field.

DeSales Roundup

Swim teams counting heavily on ‘big four’ By JEREMY STEWART ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The DeSales High School boys and girls swimming and diving teams will compete at the CCL meet on Saturday, Jan. 29, with a lineup led by what coach J.R. Fourqurean calls the “big four.” The DeSales boys team might not have the depth of St. Charles and the same could be said about the girls team compared to Watterson, but with the “big four,” the Stallions have proven statelevel swimmers. With Cooper Staton of the boys team and Andrea Acquista, Andrea Devakul and Suzanne Hrabowy of the girls team, the Stallions have been able to focus on filling in the gaps for the postseason. “With some help from some key individuals, we should be able to get four relays as well as some individual events at the state level,” Fourqurean said. “They will make a big impact on the Central District meet as well as the state meet.” Staton, the defending Division II state champion in the 50yard freestyle (20.98 seconds), will be looking to take home his third CCL title in the 50 free and second in the 100 free. Staton’s winning performances in the 50 free (21.87) and 100 free (49.38) last season set CCL meet records. He appears to be on his way to another strong postseason after placing second (21.54) in the 50 free behind Strongsville’s Michael Meldon (21.23) at the Northeast Classic on Jan. 15. He also was eighth (50.45) in the 100 free behind Hudson’s Jimmy Dagley (47.9). The boys team scored 204 points at last year’s CCL meet and finished second behind St. Charles (437). Watterson was third (194) and Hartley was fourth (181). Fourqurean said the Stallions should have a shot to place second again, with Hartley also being a strong contender. The Stallions’ finish could come down to where swimmers like Eddie Cordek, Will Gish, Kris Hallam, Santino Sanfilipo, James Walsh and Kevin Walsh place. They will have to make an impact, Fourqurean said. The girls team is looking for strong performances from Devakul and Hrabowy, who were part of a 200 medley relay that was 11th (1:53.98) at state last year. Hrabowy also was sixth (58.57) in the 100 butterfly and sixth (52.78) in the 100 free. Acquista was fourth in diving (381.55 points). Acquista won the CCL diving title last year with 409 points. Hrabowy was one of several Stallions swimmers who didn’t compete in their normal events at last year’s CCL meet. She ended up placing third (25.16) in the 50 free despite training heavily for the 100 fly and 100 backstroke. In 2009, Hrabowy won the CCL championship in the 200 individual medley (2:20.28). At the Northeast Classic, Hrabowy was ninth (53.8) in the 100 free behind Massillon Jackson’s Chase Kinney (52.58) and 13th (1:00.53) in the 100 fly behind Akron Firestone’s Katie Miller (56.08). Acquista was eighth (380.9) in diving behind Cuyahoga Falls’ Haleigh Bartlett (456.2). The Stallions also expect strong contributions from Kara

Goodman, Erica Hegedus, Abby Moonis, Katie Murray and Amy Shomo. The girls team was third (236) in the CCL last season behind Watterson (395) and Hartley (336) and ahead of Columbus School for Girls (144). “All the teams top to bottom are tough (on the girls side),” Fourqurean said. “I think you have to look at Watterson being the favorite with Hartley giving them a run for their money. I’d like to see us land in third, but CSG will be a tough group to beat out. We always go into this meet to be competitive and to change our mindset from dual meets to tournament mode and to make any corrections we need before sectionals start.” •The hockey team earned a much needed 10-1 win over Watterson on Jan. 22. It was the Stallions’ first Capital Hockey Conference win this season. DeSales is 1-6-1 with 1 point in the CHC, which places them 13th in the 14-team league ahead of Watterson (0-11). Dublin Jerome is first at 8-1 (16 points). “The Watterson game came at a wonderful time for us,” coach Bob Heine said. “For the first period, it was 0-0 and then we had some upperclassmen that were able to step up and turn the tide for us. Watterson has

made some strides and for us it was a confidence builder.” At 5-17 overall, the Stallions already have surpassed last season’s win total. DeSales was 418-3 overall and 1-10-1 in the CHC last season. With a large freshman class that consists of Hunter Chapman, Colm Crotty, Thomas Gorman, Danny Helin, Tyler Klutch, Kyle Ghiloni, Ben Risinger and Josh VanCuyk, the Stallions have had to deal with inexperience. The Stallions have relied on seniors J.P. Mazzocco, Joe Eierman and Eddie Levin to provide the leadership. Some games like a 10-0 loss to Dublin Coffman on Jan. 23 have been tough, but the Stallions also have suffered close losses. The Stallions lost to Thomas Worthington 4-3 in overtime on Jan. 2 and five days later lost to Gahanna 3-2. “We’ve really worked hard in just about every game,” Heine said. “The work ethic and the enthusiasm has been the high point. It’s just a lack of experience. We have a lot of freshman and they’re learning every day. We haven’t given up on anything. We’re going to keep going and continue to work hard.”

It makes for an intersection of music and other aspects of society, something perhaps not unique to the HBCU experience, but amplified. “The marching bands are so integral to those institutions, the historically black colleges and universities, where in many places that’s the branding of the school, what it’s known for,” Brayon said. Created by the musical consultants from the Disney movie Drumline, Brayon said the hope was to “take this kind of HBCU experience to areas that Drumline Live will play the Palace Theatre Tuesday, Feb. 1.

Simply put, “it’s a marching band doing what marching bands do,” Brayon said. “We want people to feel like they’re in the stands.” Of course, they’re in a theater, so some allowances had to be made. Rather than a 200-piece band, the cast is comprised of 37 performers, most of whom play multiple instruments and some of whom also sing and/or dance. However, Drumline Live brings the show into the aisles at various points, and concludes with a New Orleans-style parade. For more from The Beat’s interview with Reggie Brayon, read the BeatBlog at

New Salvi’s Bistro serves popular old favorites If you’re a fan of well-made Italian-American comfort food served in absurdly generous portions and sold at very fair prices, then you might know about Salvi’s. Better than any national chain in the same hospitality game, the locally grown Salvi’s has been pleasing Columbusites in different guises for more than four decades. Once dotting the city with popular eateries, Salvi’s legacy was down to its last outpost in Hilliard until recently. Open since early November, the latest Salvi’s venture replaces a Dublin space formerly occupied by an upscale steakhouse chain called Stony Ridge. This new Salvi’s is a casually handsome place in a predominantly polished dark-brown wood, lodge-like fashion. Open and roomy, it includes a duskily lit and comfy bar in its handful of dining areas. It’s fre-

But it’ll likely have you thinking you should pop in more often. Similarly, while the smallish wine list won’t thrill or excite, it contains familiar and reliable labels like Gabbiana, Masi and Antinori. That bubbly old Spanish warhorse, Frexienet, would be a great sipping choice with the insanely gigantic Bistro Sampler ($13).

Taco vendor settles into permanent location on Northwest Side Carlos Nonato is part of the vibrant taco-truck culture on the West Side. The business, understandably, is weather dependent. And, naturally, the elements take their toll on even the sturdiest of operators, he said. “Outside is hard – the cold, rain,” he said. And while he’s not trading in his mobile stand on Sullivant Avenue, Nonato has opened a permanent restaurant, Taqueria Los Gauchos, at 5221 Godown Road on the Northwest Side. The laidback eatery offers counter-order service. Alcohol is not sold. The main attraction is the al pastor – thinly sliced pork piled on a skewer and cooked on a vertical rotisserie. The pork is sliced and quickly grilled. In

the Mexican tradition, it is placed on a corn tortilla (flour is another option) with cilantro and chopped onion. There are other taco fillings, as well as other entrée choices, such as burritos, quesadillas, fajitas and such. Of course, house-made salsa is served on the side. Nonato said he doesn’t hold back the heat with his signature choice, made of habanero peppers. Even the next level, salsa rojo, is spicy, while the guacamole is mild. Taqueria Los Gauchos (pronounced wah-chos), is open for lunch and dinner daily. For more information, call 614-538-0211.

Patrons attend the opening day of Taqueria Los Gauchos, 5221 Godown Road, on Jan. 20. The restaurant focuses on inexpensive Mexican fare, including tacos, burritos, tortas and quesadillas.

Dough slinger Patrick Miller has taken over the Flying Pizza on Bethel Road. The restaurant, which has been closed for several weeks, will reopen tomorrow after a renovation project. Known as “Pizza Patt” in the pie-tossing community, Miller said the recipe is the same but the topping options have expanded to include bacon, ham, pineapple, jalapenos and such, plus the addition of white-sauce pizzas. Miller bought the Flying Pizza on OSU campus two years ago from Joe Graci, who retired. Graci’s son, Sal, ran the Bethel Center location until the recent sale. Frank Graci, a relative and owner of the original store in Dayton, is Miller’s partner in the Bethel store. Miller said he made the quarter finals in the trickpizza-tossing competition on America’s Got Talent and participates at annual conventions in Las Vegas and Italy. Flying Pizza is known for its thin- and thickcrust pies and by-the-slice options. The lunch special, two slices of cheese and a 16-ounce pop for $5 ($5.50 for pepperoni), remains. Miller said he has resisted the urge to put more than pizza on the menu. “We do one thing and do it right,” he said. For more information, call 614-457-2323. Craig Barnum is no longer part of Historic Dublin Restaurants but still has a restaurant in Historic Dublin. The partnership of Barnum, Mike Tibbetts and Jack Eggpuehler launched a trio of restaurants — Oscar’s, Tucci’s and Brazenhead — in Dublin’s town center. Barnum called the split amicable. “I think everyone realized it was time to move on,” said Barnum, who still owns Tucci’s under CLB Restaurants. Gift cards purchased before the

split will be honored by each restaurant, he said. The arrangement started in 1995, when Oscar’s opened. It was followed by Tucci’s and Brazenhead three years later. Since then, all three partners expanded the Brazenhead concept and tried their hands with different restaurants. Barnum and Tibbetts opened a steakhouse in the Polaris area that has since closed. Tibbetts also opened Cabo Cocina and Barnum founded Matt the Miller’s in Dublin. Another is set to open this spring on Grandview Avenue. Meanwhile, Eggspuehler branched out with the Adena’s and Buck Mulligan’s, both of which are no longer in business. “Really the last couple years, everyone naturally had different goals and desires and so forth,” Barnum said. “We did a lot of great things together,” Tibbetts added. “I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything but I understand people take different directions.”

Sinus infections can be frequent Frequent sinus infections in children are a common problem, especially for children in daycare settings. The average child can have six to ten upper respiratory tract infections a year that have symptoms including nasal discharge and blockage. Other factors that contribute to frequent sinus infections are environmental allergies, exposure to second-hand smoke, immunodeficiency, congenital craniofacial anomalies and some inherited conditions. Children with lung problems such as asthma and cystic fibrosis often have related sinus problems. Most viral infections will resolve without treatment. A small percentage will progress to bacterial sinusitis that will require antibiotics for treatment. Narrowing or blockage of the nasal passages or sinus openings may increase the chances that a cold will progress to bacterial sinusitis. Often, children may need medication to help treat sinus problems. This could include nasal steroids, nasal saline, mucous-thinning medications called mucolytics, and some allergy medications

such as antihistamines. In a small percentage of children, surgery may be necessary to relieve the CHARLES blockage and the siELMARAGHY open nuses or nasal passages. Prior to any surgery, a thorough work-up is necessary in order to determine the appropriate treatment course. Younger children do not typically need surgery on the sinuses as their sinuses are still developing. Younger children with frequent sinus infections often have their adenoid, a patch of tissue located where the nose and throat join, removed. The adenoid can be a haven for bacteria and can often block the nasal passages. Removing the adenoid is a simple and painless surgery that can be very effective. When the sinus problem is more involved than an enlarged adenoid, the sinuses need to be imaged via a special X-ray called a CT scan to investigate the anatomy of the

sinuses and determine if the openings of the sinuses are blocked. If sinus openings are blocked, they can be enlarged using special instruments and a small camera called an endoscope. This is called endoscopic sinus surgery. The natural openings are widened and preservation of normal anatomy is the goal. Nationwide Children’s Hospital’s Rhinology Clinic is unique in that it offers allergy testing and endoscopic evaluation during the same visit. This allows both the allergist and otolaryngologist to determine an appropriate treatment plan. You should always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health care provider prior to starting or stopping any treatment or with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Dr. Charles Elmaraghy is a member of the Department of Otolaryngology at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and an assistant professor of clinical otolaryngology at the Ohio State University College of Medicine.
